    Except of course that there is nothing 'historic' about them. The sole reason they are listed in the National Register is that they are located onUConn's campus. Move them a half mile and they are old buildings that aren't particularly noteworthy other than their state of disrepair.

    Those junky brown houses are historic. Yeah, for the amount of puke they produced as frats.
